Life of an Indoor Cat

.

our cat’s as big as a cougar
but not as lithe

she prey-scans through windows
to her genes’ delight

purina’s her grub, poor thing,
she’d rather mice

she wolf’s her dish (and mate’s)
she is not polite

never runs through the grass after finches
to keep her figure light

she’d rather be free in on road(?)
yes, we think she might

but we keep her safe within
to avoid the chomp of a big car’s bite
